I'm just curious; how many deviants out there still draw & colour their artwork by hand? Computer editing and colouring seems to be the way to do things, especially if you want to sell your art or become a 'serious artist'. I don't have any problem with using computers for art--I know it still takes lots of time and skill to produce a piece, and it makes drawing things like comics MUCH easier. (As opposed to drawing out every single frame over and over again.)

I don't consider myself a "serious" artist--drawing is something I do for enjoyment and to be creative. I have often been told I should try to sell my art, especially the cartoons I put on birthday cards and such, but the problem is that I don't feel I have the right education in terms of how to market my art. I also don't have access to photoshop or really expensive tools of the trade. I've considered trying to sell my art, but it feels like such a something that's way out of my reach.

Anyway, I'm getting off-topic. My point was that since I don't have photoshop or anything, I draw and colour everything by hand. (This is both a good and bad thing in my eyes. ;p ) Am I the only one who does this? Does anyone else here do all their art by hand?

I :+fav: and :sprint:

:peace: :heart: :earth: :iconllapplz:

My name is Miluiel, I’m Canadian (and proud of it!) and I love to write and draw fantasy. :D

I am a geek in ALMOST every way you can imagine, though my sphere of nerdliness is always re-shaping and expanding: I absolutely love Lord of the Rings, X Men, Spiderman, Avatar, Harry Potter, CSI, Criminal minds, Star Trek, Supernatural, Heroes, the list goes on.

My favorite authors are Terry Brooks, Alison Croggon and Megan Whalen Turner, among others. :heart: I love every kind of music from Celtic to Rock, and I’m always listening to music.

I plan to be a writer. Though I suspect I’ll just be living like a hermit in the basement, holed up with my laptop, I KNOW this is what I want to do. I’ve written a bunch of little snippets, but I’m still trying to convince myself to work on something bigger, or better yet; send my stuff away! :faint:

If you wish, please take time to read my writing; I’m always up for tips on how I can improve. I also love hearing from my brilliant fellow artists out there! :wave:

If you like what you see, I am up for requests! Please send me a note asking what you want, because I do have rules. :police:

And I love emotes. :tighthug: :poke: :turbopoke: :iconpounceglomp: :dummy: :icondamglingcursorplz: :iconiloveyouplz: :heart: :iconloveyouplz: :tunes: :love: :huggle: :happycry: :floating: :library: :ninja: :meditation: :iconglompage: :iconbackhug: :iconglompbutt: :iconmeltplz: :iconspazhugplz: :icongwompplz:
